SKF Year-end report 2010Tom Johnstone, President and CEO:"SKF delivered a very good performance in 2010 with record operating profit and operatingmargin and a strong cash flow. We took a number of steps during the year to furtherstrengthen the Group and opened three new factories and announced two more to support ourdevelopment in the faster growing regions and segments. In addition, we completed theacquisition of Lincoln Industrial which complements our existing lubrication systems business.In the fourth quarter all regions and divisions showed very good growth, as expected.Entering 2011 we expect to see a continued positive volume development. However, we willface headwinds due to currency and higher raw material costs, adding to those already facedin the fourth quarter. To support our long-term profit and growth targets we will step up ourinvestments in manufacturing, research and development and in additional sales andengineering resources.” Q4 Q4 YTD YTD 2010 2009 2010 2009Net sales, SEKm 15,409 13,887 61,029 56,227Operating profit, SEKm 2,202 1,004 8,452 3,203Operating margin, % 14.3 7.2 13.8 5.7Operating margin excl. one-off items, % 14.9 10.1 14.2 8.0Profit before taxes, SEKm 2,048 765 7,549 2,297Net profit, SEKm 1,350 505 5,296 1,705Basic earnings per share, SEK 2.87 1.05 11.28 3.61The increase of 11.0% in net sales for the quarter, in SEK, was attributable to: volume 16.3%,price/mix 0.9% and currency effects -6.2%.

The number of first filings of patent applicationswas 251 (218).SKF’s Performance Share Programme 2011In order to continue to link the interests of the senior management and the shareholders, theBoard proposes that a decision be taken at the Annual General Meeting in April 2011 on SKF’sPerformance Share Programme 2011. The terms and conditions of the proposed SKF’sPerformance Share Programme 2011 are in essence the same as the terms and conditions ofthe programmes for 2008, 2009 and 2010.
It is proposed that the programme covers a maximum of 310 senior managers and keyemployees in the SKF Group, including Group Management, with the opportunity of beingallotted, free of charge, SKF class B shares. The number of shares that may be allotted mustbe related to the degree of achievement of financial targets defined by the Board of Directorsin accordance with the SKF Group’s TVA management model and must pertain to the periodcommencing 2011 up to and including 2013. Under the programme, no more than 1,000,000class B shares may be allotted.The Performance Share programme 2008, which was decided by the AGM on April 16, 2008will be settled in the first quarter 2011. The outcome is that about 250 managers of the SKFGroup will receive around 117,000 SKF class B shares (around 12% of maximum) amountingto around SEK 25 million including social charges.The year in briefThe Group’s ongoing cost reduction activities, combined with the improved volumes both insales and manufacturing and the continued implementation of the Group’s strategy, had avery positive effect on the Group’s operating profit and resulted in a record operating profitand operating margin for the Group. The steps taken in recent years to make the companymore robust is giving results which can be seen by the very positive development in 2010 andthe resilient performance in 2009.As a result of the strong performance and the strategy for the SKF Group new long-termfinancial targets were announced in October 2010. The new targets are to have an operatingmargin level of 15%, annual sales growth in local currencies of 8% and a return on capitalemployed of 27%. The inventory target of 18% of net sales remain. The main initiatives goingforward to support the strategy and targets will be to accelerate profitable growth, to reducecosts and eliminate waste and to invest for growth.Three new factories were opened during the year, two in India, at Haridwar and Ahmedabad,and one in Russia at Tver. These factories are built to the LEED (Leadership in Energy andEnvironmental Design) or equivalent standard as with all new SKF facilities. SKF alsoannounced the construction of two new factories which will open in late 2011. A new sealsfactory is under construction in Mysore, India and a bearing factory is being established inDalian, China to produce medium-sized bearings for the industrial market.SKF continued to open new SKF Solution Factories throughout the year with nine beingopened, bringing the total at the end of 2010 to 17. These SKF Solution Factories gather SKF’sexpertise under one roof and are already proving beneficial for customers and distributors bymaking SKF’s knowledge more readily accessible to them.To support the development in Asia, SKF opened a new Global Technical Centre in China tocomplement the centre opened in India in 2009. These new Global Technical Centres will bean integral part of the SKF Group’s global technology network and will bring new productdevelopment closer to SKF’s customers in this rapidly developing region.Acquisition of Lincoln Industrial (see separate press release dated 23 December 2010)SKF’s acquisition of Lincoln Holding Enterprises (Lincoln Industrial), a leading supplier oflubrication systems and tools was completed at the end of the year. Lincoln Industrial,headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, USA has about 2,000 employees and generated sales ofaround USD 400 million in 2010 with an operating margin of around 24%.
The acquisition is in line with SKF’s strategy to grow the lubrication systems market. LincolnIndustrial is highly complementary to SKF’s existing lubrication system business when itcomes to geographical sales coverage, technology and manufacturing footprint, in particular inNorth America and Asia. In addition, Lincoln Industrial provides SKF with improved access tothe lubrication tools and equipment aftermarket in North America.
Page 1 of 19Lincoln Industrial is included in the Group’s balance sheet at year-end 2010 with preliminaryopening balances, as follows:Fair value of net assets acquired (SEKm):Intangibles assets 7,032Operating assets 1,747Other liabilities -1,732Total purchase price 7,047Cash and cash equivalents acquired -283Cash outflow 6,764Lincoln Industrial’s income statement will be included in the Group from the first-quarter results of2011, as part of a newly created business unit for lubrication systems within SKF IndustrialDivision.Based on the preliminary opening balances, annual amortization and depreciation together areexpected to be slightly below USD 25 million for acquired intangibles and plant, property andequipment after fair value adjustments. The operating profit will be negatively impacted primarilyin the first quarter by around USD 15 million, representing the fair value adjustment on inventoriesas part of opening balances for Lincoln Industrial.Please see enclosure 8 for more information about the acquisition of Lincoln Industrial.Divestment subsequent to year endSKF divested its forging business, Officine Meccaniche Villar Perosa SpA (OMVP), in Villar Perosa,Italy to the German based company Neumayer Tekfor Holding GmbH, one of the largest forgingcompanies in Europe.

A general economic downturn at global level, or inone of the world’s leading economies, could reduce the demand for the Group’s products, solutionsand services for a period of time. In addition, terrorism and other hostilities, as well asdisturbances in worldwide financial markets, could have a negative effect on the demand for the
Page 5 of 19Group’s products and services. There are also political and regulatory risks associated with thewide geographical presence. Regulatory requirements, taxes, tariffs and other trade barriers, priceor exchange controls or other governmental policies could limit the SKF Group’s operations.The SKF Group is subject to both transaction and translation of currency exposure. For commercialflows the SKF Group is primarily exposed to the USD and to US dollar-related currencies. As themajor part of the profit is made outside Sweden, the Group is also exposed to translational risks inall the major currencies. The parent company performs services of a common Group character. Thefinancial position of the parent company is dependent on the financial position and development ofthe subsidiaries. A general decline in the demand for the products and services provided by theGroup could mean lower dividend income for the parent company, as well as a need for writingdown values of the shares in the subsidiaries.Cautionary statementThis report contains forward-looking statements that are based on the current expectations of themanagement of SKF. Although management believes that the expectations reflected in suchforward-looking statements are reasonable, no assurance can be given that such expectations willprove to have been correct.

Lincoln Industrial is a leader in the design, manufactureand supply of highly engineered lubrication systems, tools and equipment, and is headquartered inSt. Louis, Missouri, USA.Lincoln Industrial’s three main product lines are automated lubrication systems, hose reels, andgrease guns, with a focus on grease-based systems. Sales are mainly generated from automatedlubrication systems and related products. Major end markets include industrial, energy, off-highway, mining, agriculture, and steel. The company has a global footprint with around 50% of itssales generated in North America, 25% in Europe and 20% in Asia Pacific. The company hasaround 2,000 employees with manufacturing operations in the US, Asia and Europe.Lincoln Industrial will be part of a newly created business unit for lubrication systems within SKF’sIndustrial Division. The acquisition of Lincoln Industrial is in line with SKF’s strategy and builds ona series of acquisitions made in the lubrication systems sector over the last six years. LincolnIndustrial is highly complementary to SKF’s existing lubrication systems business, with limitedproduct and geographical overlap. The acquisition furthers SKF’s strategy including: • improving the lubrication systems platform through Lincoln Industrial’s complementary product portfolio. • increasing the geographical sales coverage in North America and Asia. • expanding the business to the automotive aftermarket in the US. • expanding the manufacturing operations through Lincoln Industrial’s strong US and Asian manufacturing footprint.SKF expects to achieve significant synergies from the combination through improved salesopportunities and greater efficiencies.Lincoln Industrial is included in the Group’s balance sheet at 31 December 2010, with no impact onthe Group’s income statement for the year 2010. Their results will be included in the Group’sincome statement as from 1 January 2011.A preliminary allocation of the acquisition cost to the identifiable assets acquired and liabilitiesassumed (net assets) was made. All allocations are only preliminary and are expected to befinalized in Q2 2011 pending the final audit and asset valuations. The preliminary values are asfollows: Fair value of net assets acquired (SEKm): Trademarks 1,020 Customer relationships 1,836 Other intangibles 287 Plant, property and equipment 358 Receivables 441 Inventory 648 Other assets 300 Deferred tax provisions -1,225 Post-employment benefits -163 Other liabilities -344 3,158 Goodwill 3,889 Total acquisition cost 7,047 Cash and cash equivalents acquired -283 Cash outflow 6,764
Page 15 of 19The acquisition cost is subject only to adjustments for the final audited cash, working capital, andindebtedness levels. The acquisition was paid using existing cash and credit facilities. Acquisitionrelated-costs of SEK 99 million were expensed, of which SEK 80 million was included as Otheroperating expense and SEK 19 million was included as Selling expense in the Group’s incomestatement.Receivables arise from the normal course of business and include an allowance for uncollectibilty ofapproximately SEK 16 million.The acquisition of Lincoln Industrial included all Lincoln, Alemite and Reelcraft entities and brands.Consequently the opening balances include a preliminary valuation of trademarks of SEK 1,020million, which the Group considers to have indefinite useful lives, as it is intended to continue topromote these brands in the foreseeable future. Preliminary values were allocated to othersignificant intangibles which included customer relationships to be amortized over an expected lifeof 15 years.None of the goodwill is expected to be deductible for tax purposes. The preliminary goodwill arisesdue to Lincoln Industrial’s expected ability to continuously renew its technology resulting inimproved sales opportunities as well as their ability to deliver strong financial performance on aconsistent basis.Proforma net sales and net profitHad Lincoln Industrial been acquired at 1 January 2010, the consolidated revenue for the Groupwould have amounted to SEK 63,858 million, and consolidated net profit would have been SEK5,509 million. This unaudited proforma information adds Lincoln Industrial’s income statementexcluding their acquisition-related costs and financing costs, and adjusts for the additionalamortizations, depreciations, and inventory costs arising from the fair value adjustment.Additionally, net financial costs were adjusted to reflect the change in the Group’s net interestbearing liabilities caused by the payment of the purchase price. Income taxes have been includedin all proforma adjustments.
